Sisters of Mercy goes mobile.

Chesterfield, Mo.-based Sisters of Mercy Health System has selected Hatboro, Pa.-based InfoLogix Inc. for its wireless multi-site medical communications.

Doctors, nurses and patients at Mercy hospitals will have access to the system by using more than 200 handsets across three campuses, the company says. Nurses on Mercy campuses will carry a mobile wireless handset solution to enable rapid transmission and receipt of information using a VoIP Gateway component, the company touts.

Sisters of Mercy Health System operates in a seven state area that includes Arkansas, Kansas and Louisiana, with hospitals, physician practices and outpatient clinics. Its members include 19 acute care hospitals providing more than 4,000 licensed beds, two heart hospitals, and a managed care subsidiary.
